16. MISCELLANEOUS TERMS
EmbarQ makes no representation that materials in the site are appropriate or available for use in your specific locations.
Your being permitted to use this site will not be construed as creating any joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship between you and EmbarQ.
If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
This is the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter herein and cannot be modified except in writing, signed by both you and us.
In the event of litigation involving the use of this site, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys fees and costs.
EMBARQ may use "cookies" to make our service more effective. A "cookie" is a small text file placed on your hard drive by our server. It allows our server to recognize whether you have visited our site before thereby saving you the need to provide information that we have already received from you. If you would prefer not receiving cookies, most Web browsers offer menu options allowing you to disable them.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information that you provide us is of great concern to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, EMBARQ cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us; in other words, you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our reasonable best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. All information you provide to our site is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us.
